Materials and Methods: Written consent was obtained from the patients. The history of the disease was taken from the patients, and the patients' enrollment files were retrieved. Results: Of the 171 patients, 5 (2.96%) were diagnosed with ILC with tumor Grade II, and stage of the cancer reported was Grade III in all the 5 patients affected with ILC.
